The Naked Classroom

Most people, whether they admit it or not, accept the basic premises of what is commonly called Human Bio-Diversity. We tend to live around people who look like us and think like us. It is why after more than half a century of trying, the United States is as segregated as it was before civil rights. Humans naturally self-segregate and that is both natural and based in natural properties.

The term Human Bio-Diversity is credited to Steve Sailer, who years ago hosted an email list using that label to discuss advances in the human sciences. For a time, the HBD subculture functioned as a sort of counterculture, reacting to the dominant blank slate culture, while refuting their claims about the human condition. It has remained a gateway drug for many who end up in the dissident camp.

Thirty years ago when The Bell Curve was released, what would become the HBD world was primarily focused on intelligence. After close to a century of systematically measuring human intelligence and comparing the results to various social outcomes, science seemed to prove what people have always suspected. Intelligence is heritable and genetically determined.

Over the last thirty years, managerial culture has turned against the human sciences in an effort to defend their blank slate presuppositions. If IQ is mostly about genes and most of the rest is about home environment, which is also mostly about genes, then most of what makes up pedagogy is as empirical and tarot card reading. This is the topic of Ed Dutton’s new book The Naked Classroom.

The book sets out to do three things within the context of education. One is it explains why schools and schoolteachers tend to be far left. Dutton relies on the human sciences to explain the qualities that are selected for by schools, but also what types of people will be attracted to education. The chapter on the biological basis for homosexuality is both enlightening and disturbing in this context.

The second goal of this book is to function as a breezy summary of what we know about human cognition for the average reader. Simply knowing that intelligence can be measured is not useful without some real-world examples that show how intelligence plays a role in every aspect of life. For example, boys reach puberty later than girls, which is why they seem dumber than girls pre-teen.

The final goal of the book is to explain how intelligence and dimensions of personality, the Big Five, explain the cultural trends. People with slightly above average intelligence tend to be more compliant with social trends because they quickly see the benefit in participating in the latest thing. This explains why the woke always tend to be midwits with impressive credentials but limited practical knowledge.

For those looking for a gentle introduction to the HBD topic, then this is an excellent book to buy and read. Dutton is aiming at the general reader looking for a place to start and he is a very capable teacher. His YouTube channel is popular because he is also a highly entertaining presenter. It is a short book that covers the main topics of intelligence, personality, and human differences.

This brings up the main problem in the book. If you are a fan of the Jolly Heretic YouTube channel, then you have heard Dutton discuss the material in the book many times on his show. In fact, the book is a written summary of the last couple of years of his video work. In other words, it is not a book for those already familiar with Ed Dutton or the general ideas within the human bio-diversity subculture.

Another nit that can be picked is that Dutton hints around at the question of whether people can be trained to be logical, but he never takes it head on. This is the general flaw with the HBD space. They get to the water’s edge but never come to the inevitable conclusion that must follow their observations. If who we are is written in our code, then the liberal project is nothing more than superstition.

For example, if what science tells us about male homosexuality is largely correct, then logically we should never permit male homosexuals to be around young males without strict supervision. In fact, we should be aggressively screening out homosexuals from schools, youth groups and so forth. Of course, suggesting this means men with guns are sent to throw you into the void.

In other words, if the people with real power refuse to go where science about human nature must lead, then what is the point of knowing any of this? Further, there must be some material explanation for why people with heads full of oogily-boogily seem to rise to the top of liberal societies. Perhaps evolution does not care about empiricism as much as the fans of evolutionary biology insist.

In fairness, this is not the point of the book, so Dutton cannot be faulted for not diving into this topic. He also has to worry about being hurled into the void. In the end, the evolutionary imperative may simply shrug off liberalism like a case of fleas and it will follow other oogily-boogily into the dustbin of history. In the fullness of time, the HBD people will be proven correct about the reality of the human condition.

In the end, a book is judged by how well it achieves what the author sets out to do, not by what some crank in the critic community thinks it should have done. In his short summary of how IQ and personality shapes education in the West, Dutton ticks all of the boxes he set out to tick. The result is a great gift to the dissident curious who needs a gentle introduction to the topic as they sit by the pool this summer.

The intersection between the two is Social Darwinism. At least some HBDers would like to eliminate those they think don’t measure up to their standards (e.g., those with low IQs, handicaps or the wrong skin tone). The oligarchs would like to eliminate just about everybody but themselves. It is remarkable how riches seem to breed misanthropy, frequently disguised as philanthropy (Bill Gates being a prime example).

The HBD crowd has the same worldview as the blank slate crowd. Namely, they have the same belief in the validity of science, and believe that science should shape political decision-making. The difference between the two is basically an argument over interpreting data. Thus, the HBD crowd was caught up in covid hysteria because they accept the left wing premise of science’s role in human affairs, and in this instance agreed with the official claims. These guys aren’t skeptics.

Science should shape decision-making, the emphasis on shape rather than determine. Other factors like cultural mores should, of course, play a role.

It’s not so much a disagreement over science (observations and the meaning that can be drawn from them within the context of known natural law) as it is a belief that science must ALWAYS play a secondary role to ephemeral political considerations.

What was clear early on is that many of the mouthpieces of HBD were aging boomers (Sailer Cochran, Derb, Unz) who were simply afraid of dying. Extremely well read and researched commenters (like Hail and AE Newman) regularly took Sailer to task at the time, but Sailer’s believe in covid was/is religious. Arguing with him was like arguing with a Born Again that there is no God.

Mike Tre: You get it, but most of the newbies (and plenty of the regulars) here do not. IQ does not equal wisdom and/or common sense, let alone practicality. That is why we need White people across the IQ spectrum, not some diverse society of supposed smart people. The HBD purists are like the attendees at a Mensa meeting – high on their own supply. And – as another Sailer commenter who is wasting his time there says – Loyalty to one’s own people matters at least as much as anything else, and often a good deal more.

If the purpose of education is to teach logical thinking, it is a complete and total failure. Most people do not and cannot think logically in a general way. They might be able to think perfectly logically in their own narrow specialty, but not generally. This is especially true if the consequences of logical thinking is to become an outcast.

So, in a small way, this makes me suspect that a lot of the testing is biased just because people haven’t been trained in the proper skills to take these kinds of tests, including IQ tests

That’s a fair concern, but it’s also an obvious one that any honest researcher is going to have cross his mind at some point and thus there has been a lot of work done on things such as A) IQ tests that don’t depend on pre-training, so aren’t biased in favor of test-taking skills, and B) Normalizing the results based on such skills.

No, he says homosexuality might be 0.3 by genetics, so at best it’s kind of a forcing. Borderline cases might be tipped one way or the other by heredity. The majority is still environment, and, though I don’t have the book yet, might have some epigenetic forcing, too. If you have several elder brothers, because of the male hormones your mom “endured” bringing them to term, you might have a higher chance of homosexuality.

There is a strong correlation between high-risk homosexual behaviors (read: bug chasing) and Toxoplasmosis infection, which begs the larger question whether some sort of parasitic infection drives homosexual behavior in general. There is no evolutionary advantage to homosexuality, so it should eventually die out, or at least become exceedingly rare, over generations. Instead, we see precisely the opposite, which indicates it is behavioral, not genetic.

Although I have to admit that the older I get I wish I were gay. Modern women are utterly impossible.

Well, to put what you suggest more bluntly, homosexuality, particularly the male type, is a severe mental illness, and was, until fairly recently, recognized as such. This is why many heauxmeaux behaviors are completely irrational.

PS–Pomo philosopher Michel Foucault, in the early 80s, was infected with the disease later known as AIDS and he knew it. Nevertheless, he continued frequenting SF bathhouses and almost certainly infected many men with the disease, effectively sentencing them to death.

Dutton sure uses a lot of “scare” quotes… Finished the first chapter, not bad, but he does three things that irritate the heck out of me. First, he simply drops “Woke” in there (like the scare quotes?) with no discussion of what it is. Second, he spends too much time defending himself as not being some sort of crypto-Nazi. Why would you open that door? Maybe he will get to that later. Third, if religions are the result of adaptation, then liberalism (the people who lock shields and demand conformity) is a genetic adaptation as well. Signaling is just another… Read more »

I wasn’t exactly convinced by the review that the book is worth reading or skimming, but I decided to check Amazon for an inside look anyway. Oh my. The table of contents makes the book look immediately like a syllabus of Thoughtcrime. No wonder I didn’t find it on the websites of the public libraries of NYC, Chicago, and San Fran. It could make the regime go wobbly, if only there were some critical mass of rebels who are interested in developing a replacement culture. Better culture requires resolutely condemning and turning away from the errors of ancestors and forebears.… Read more »

“Further, there must be some material explanation for why people with heads full of oogily-boogily seem to rise to the top of liberal societies. Perhaps evolution does not care about empiricism as much as the fans of evolutionary biology insist.”

This video does a pretty good job of answering your objection.

The summary is that in the long run (mid to end of the century) liberalism is doomed

I only watched the first couple minutes, but I am formulating a fairly long comment along the same line. The entire Earth is heading toward demographic collapse as fertility rates enter freefall. Our elites know this, which is why they are supporting mass immigration. People blame fertility collapse on the elites, but I don’t buy that. Elites suffer massively in eras of population collapse. It causes asset deflation and wage inflation, massively increasing the bargaining power of the working class at the expense of the societal elite. The bubonic plague was a huge win for the peasant class, at least… Read more »

Agreed, this is why we have to blame women lol. Every institution is behaving more erratically because we’ve shoehorned women into every major decision. Even if no women are in the board room, the men can lose half of their net worth if their business or politics don’t align with their wives hormones

Correction: the second largest factor contributing to the differences in most behavioral and psychological traits in adulthood are in fact not due to home environment after additive genetic factors. They are due to something we call non shared environment which compromises everything not shared within the same family, including measurement inaccuracies.

I’ve seen a lot of the same conclusions. I’ve seen as much as 60% is determined by peer group. Which might be why @Zman said if the science was understood, you would never let gays, trannies, pedos, etc., within a gazillion miles of adolescents and pre-adolescents, because they will influence your kids.

Here in clown world there seems to be a sizable constituency that sincerely wants homos to influence their kids. Knowing the science would possibly only encourage them more.

And what, pray tell, is the most powerful tool in creating that shred environment? The West’s vast propaganda apparatus. In theory, you can keep your kids away from the diverse and perverse, but you can’t shield them entirely from the messaging that the undesirables are actually the pinnacle of humanity.

I just hope that, come the revolution, the young people who will do most of the fighting will stick their knives into those who truly deserve it.

Agreed.

To redeem the public schools I’d take every second “public educator” and publicly hang them as a warning to the others. Or I’d just skip to burning public schools down to the ground with the teachers locked inside. Public schools are hot houses for drugs, promiscuity and faggotry as well as toxic politics.

If one will not be the men with the guns, then abandon politics oogily-boogily for the ashbin of …life… for politics is eternally power and eternally violence.

Just sit by the pool and read… books about plants or something harmless.
Or geology, avoiding volcanic activity and that sort of thing.
A gentle life…

Still waiting for you to disclose what you’ve gotten up to recently. Beaten down any minorities. Kidnapped an illegal beaner into the trunk of your car and took him back over the Rio Grande? Lullabied any LEOs / enforcers? No, nothing?

Just pecking away at the keyboard still innit? Waiting for everyone else to do something. Stop talking, you are a poser and a provocateur and I tire of your lame “do something” shtick while you comfortably sit your flabby ass in front of a screen.

You should tell him the story about the one time you tried to be a man, and got your rear-end pounded out in prison. How it made you the docile, compliant fem you now are.

Humans naturally self-segregate and that is both natural and based in natural properties. And this, of course, is manifest and rudimentarily demonstrable malarky, and the fact that it is so simply disposed of pretty much illustrates the caliber of the soi-disant intellectuals in the HBD-osphere. It is a fact universally acknowledged (my apologies, Ms. Austen) that wherever the male sex has sojourned in this world, he has put all his earnest efforts into consorting with the local females (of whom a few willing members could always be found), whatever race or color they happened to be. Thus, when it comes… Read more »

Just because you go for a bit of native tail doesn’t mean you want hordes of Mau Maus and wogs shacking up next to you in Knightsbridge or the 5th arrondissement.

Chasing tail and/or “making do” with what is available is a far different thing than an intentional commitment when options are available. The data available from dating apps shows strong in-race preferences across all groups although some are stronger than others.

Simply observing your environs displays a similar selection bias. That the rare adventurous explorers were adventurous in other aspects is hardly surprising. And they remain the exception rather than the rule.
